I downloaded my new printer profile today and to say I'm pleased with it would be an understatement. Wow! Not only dead-neutral, but great detail and subtle gradations.

I knew the Epson canned profile had a slight color cast, but was determined not to let it bother me and on the whole was very pleased with what I was getting from the canned profiles on my 2200. Now, when I compare the Epson profile to my new profile on a test target print, the deficiencies in the Epson profile just jump out at me.

The new profile is not only neutral and a better match to my monitor (calibrated with ProveIt and the new Optix puck), but contrast and detail are better.

I had asked whether it was worthwhile getting a custom profile for Epson Premium Glossy ... well, the answer for me is "yes, indeed."

BTW, I have gotten custom profiles in the past and have not been satisfied (source will remain unnamed).

Also, I am testing the profile created for Epson Premium Gloss with Epson Semigloss (using the exact same settings in the Epson driver, including paper selection) and am getting very good results. Time will tell, but I think this profile can do double duty.

Oh, and another thing, I can scarcely believe I have the profile already. I popped the targets in the mail Friday afternoon and I had the profile waiting for me to download at log in on Tuesday morning.

Color me happy.

Thanks!
